Miley Cyrus says she’s “free” of ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth and Disney and doesn’t worry so much about people’s opinions ever since she got rid of both her former lover and the company who gave her the platform to become who she is today.
Miley is covering the latest issue of Elle and she didn’t hold back when asked on what she’s made of her career from three years ago to now.
Well, three years ago she had a flop movie out called LOL, and now she’s selling out arenas all over the world so there’s a drastic difference. Haha.
But at that time she was still being seen as Hannah Montana, the good girl who makes music aimed at nine-year old girls — a demographic that Miley certainly didn’t want to attract anymore.
The 21-year old explains that she’s grateful for what Disney has done for her in terms of giving her all the tools she needed to become a superstar, but when she knew it was time to go, she didn’t hesitate.
She did worry what would become of her popularity once she decided to part ways though, saying: “I’m really thankful that I started on Disney. I got the most intense training.”
“There’s times where I wish I could have just started as a new artist, but the world has kind of allowed me to do that. I feel really lucky — a lot of kid stars get all crazy or stuck in what they were, so they can’t actually become what they’re meant to be.”
This excerpt is the juicy part: “When I went through a really intense breakup — you know, I was engaged — and when I was with him or when I was on Disney, the thing that gave me the most anxiety was not knowing what to do with myself when Disney wasn’t there to carry me anymore or if I didn’t have him.”
“And now I’m free of both of those things, and I’m fine. Like, I lay in bed at night by myself and I’m totally okay, and that’s so much stronger than the person three years ago, who would have thought they would have died if they didn’t have a boyfriend.”
Would you consider that a diss towards Liam? From the outside looking in, he seemed like a well-behaved guy who probably didn’t want to see his future wife twerking on stage all the time, right?
Well, Miley is painting a bad picture of Liam, especially in this next quote from the mag: “And now I’m free of both of those things, and I’m fine.”
“Like, I lay in bed at night by myself and I’m totally okay, and that’s so much stronger than the person three years ago, who would have thought they would have died if they didn’t have a boyfriend.”
“Finally free”? She makes it sound like he was abusive to her — Miley, talk to us, did he hurt you? Did he force you to say ‘yes’ when he popped the question?
In a sense, I understand where she’s coming from. She was naive when she decided to accept the engagement ring because she didn’t know any better. When you’re NINETEEN, you do stupid things and Miley expressed all of that in this interview.
